Flutter By Wednesday: A Kaleidoscope

The butterfly counts not months, but moments and has time enough - R. Tagore

Is that not a beautiful quote?!? Love, LOVE it!!

This week Danni challenged us to use punches in our creation. Danni has added fairies to the weekly challenges as they flutter just like butterflies. We'd love to have you join us. You can use keyword FBW when uploading at SCS/PCP. Be sure to visit Danni and leave the link in Mr Linky so we can all come see them. Kristie is this week's Featured Member so be sure to leave her some love!


I created this card a long time ago actually and just never shared it. So this week it fit perfectly with the challenge!! I saw a card very similar to this at SCS that used the Cuttlebug Butterfly die and was on a much grander scale. I can't find it now but thought it was lovely and wanted to create something similar!

I know I shared yesterday that my local stamp club was meeting and the theme was butterflies. I just played with scraps and my butterfly punches for my swap cards. They are very, very simple compared to what I normally do. No cuttlebugging. No dimensionals. Just pure PLAY! Here are some of my favorites! I hope you enjoy them.


Love the pearl body on this one! I don't think I've seen anyone else use 2 different sizes of pearl/bling before and will definitely be using it again!


This one was Very Much like one of the PMS cards I made.




Have a beautiful day ladies!! I hope you'll play along and create something with a Flutterby or Fairy! My Cuttlebug Challenge card is next to post!

Hi Cassie,
Your work never fails to amaze me! I love the butterflies, they are all beautiful but my fav is the one with the red ribbon. It's so striking!
I found a card I just loved in the new Papercrafts - and was not at all surprised to see your name on it. Huge congrats!
